Admitted to the surgery ward for a routine colonoscopy, forty-year old George Grieves (Thomas Cavanagh) finds himself forced to confront his greatest fear when his surroundings take an unsettling shift towards the surreal. Immediately after awakening from his anesthesia, George is horrified to discover that the surgeon has performed the wrong operation on him. Now, as George's mental and physical condition begins to deteriorate rapidly, he discovers that something is horribly amiss in the hospital's East Ward. But in order to find out the truth about what's been happening in the East Ward, George will have to come face to face with the most sadistic nurse around, and make a difficult decision that promises to alter the course of his entire life.

  • It's less a visual tour-de-force than force-fed pretentious shots meant to convey artistry.

  • It was kinda fun...watching poor George's deteriorating predicament. I kept thinking of Monty Python's Black Knight.

  • unpleasant and flat-out unwatchable piece of work...

  • Whether you'll stick with the movie through to its disappointing end will depend entirely on your stomach for blood, dismemberment, and, ultimately, copouts of epic proportion.

  • Still, even with Krantz's misplaced political advocacy, Sublime comes across as an impressive feature.

  • Relatively-sophisticated for a sci-fi horror flick, this psychological thriller scares the bejesus out of you while subtly using malpractice as metaphor for a generally unacknowledged aspect of American culture.

    This movie attempts social-political relevance, an exploration of the fears and guilt of middle-class America on a profound level. Unfortunately this movie is just profoundly dull. The main character, George Grieves, is superficial and arouses no interest or sympathy. The film wants us to explore the fears and guilt of a man we could care less about let alone empathize with. The story itself is overwrought with heavy handed metaphors, lacks suspense or thrill and is torpid at best. For the most part I was left feeling disappointed and uninterested. If you really want to make a statement about the human condition, next time a little less thematic symbolism and a little more humanity.

    After watching the DVD's director commentary I learned this horror film was a political allegory about George Bush and the Middle-East. Huh??? Didn't work, but this low-budget horror film does offer a creepy look at a hospital visit gone haywire.

    Maybe... if you spend your life worrying... then the only way that your life will have meaning is if what you fear becomes real.
